Thank you to everyone who read the blog in 2018, with special thanks to those of you who were kind enough to also donate during the year.

And thanks again to all of those who reached out after the September blog update with support. I'm still figuring out exactly what I'll be doing next, but will update all of you when the time comes.


"We love the idea of other people using mechanistic formulas to price things, because they may be right 99 times out of 100 but we don’t have to play those 99 times. We just play the one time when we have a differing view." --Warren Buffett (2003)
